The Main Event provides an annual challenge to players to negotiate their way through thousands of opponents through a uniquely deep structure in order to make their fortune -- and, perhaps, a bit of fame as well. For some players, the Main Event also provides a challenge to prove themselves fashion-wise, too.
Among the 700 or so players still with chips, we're looking at room full of the usual baseball caps, sunglasses, hoodies, and cowboy hats. But there are few players standing out from the field as we pass through the tables. The one wearing a red velvet robe and red top hat has caught our eye more than once. As has the fellow donning an orange plastic crown and matching lei.
But the gentleman dressed as Snow White over in the Purple section is the current leader in terms of grabbing the most attention, if not chips.
